    Just lay down on floor, pop your head under the front bumper and reach up with your hand to undo the cap at the bottom of the fog light.

    H3 bulb as mentioned above.

    Might help to pop one wheel up on a kerb to give a bit more access.

    You need a T20 to undo the flap under the bumper first.

    What flap is that then?

    Last time I saw one was on my Vec-B and was only on one side (drivers I think)

    Haven't seen any on both Vec-C's I've owned.

    Been looking at my front fogs recently as one has got smashed.

    The diesel undertray doesn't cover the foglights so this is a no tools job. Undo the round cap on the underneath of the unit, remove and replace the H3 bulb, then fit the cap back on and test.

    Only issue is space under the car so use of a kerb or ramps might be of benefit.

    Is it a pre-facelift or a facelift model? Early 2004 is pre-facelift and dead easy to change foglight bulbs. Late 2004 is facelift and more tricky unless you take the bumper off.

    Pre-facelift is just a case of lying on the ground and looking up at the bottom of the foglight. You'll see a round cap that just unscrews to reveal the bulb. Release the clip, unplug the wire on the H3 bulb and remove it. Refitting is a reversal of removal
